#WinemagRating: 91/100.

David & Nadia Contour Series Pinotage 2015

Sensational.

David & Nadia Pinotage 2015
Price: R190
From vineyards planted in the early 1990s. 20% whole bunch fermentation, maturation lasting 14 months in older French oak. An astonishing and quite singular rendition of the variety. The nose is captivating with abundant red and black cherries but also purple flowers, black olive, spice and earth. The palate shows riveting fruit purity, freshness and tannic grip, the finish long and particularly saline. Paradigm shifting, to quote Cathy van Zyl MW.

#WinemagRating: 95/100.
